Excellence in Cyber Security

Expertise from Wilmington University plays a key role in supporting Delaware’s information security program and prepping the next generation of cyber professionals.

Dr. Mark Hufe, WilmU’s director of Cyber Security Education and chair of Computer and Network Security, along with other members of the Delaware Council of the U.S. Cyber Challenge, were recognized for enabling excellence by the state Department of Information and Technology (DTI).

The USCC is a private-public partnership program dedicated to finding high-level cyber security talent to significantly decrease the shortage of qualified cyber professionals. USCC’s goal is to identify 10,000 of the nation’s brightest and best minds to fill the technology talent void.

In addition to Dr. Hufe, state USCC council members are: Jerrod Bates, Computer and Network Security adjunct; Chase Cotton, University of Delaware; Marwan Rasamny, Delaware State University; and Elayne Starkey, DTI.

In its citation, DTI praises the council for its “extraordinary steps to help DTI achieve its vision of Enabling Excellence in Delaware State Government.”
